Movie Info

Originally in French, this English-dubbed sci-fi animation tale concerns technology turned evil in a strange, strange land. In Gandahar, Prince Sylvain has created for the past millennium a peaceful culture in which its people, animals and ecology thrived. Gandahar's inhabitants enjoy a healthy bounty typified by liquid blue trees that bear basketball-sized fruit. This utopia is then shattered by a technological disaster, which creates an automated monster. Sylvain learns he must somehow use time travel to change the course of history and, in doing so, obliterate the synthetic menace. Through his travels, Sylvain meets various mutants, both good and evil, who will clog Gandahar in the future if the past isn't altered. These mutants include a pile of protoplasm named Metamorphis and a gang of creatures that have excess limbs and facial features, often placed in unusual locations about the body.

Audience Reviews for Light Years


For the obscure sci-fi fan. Better animation the creator's 1st film Fantastic Planet but just as enjoyable. For the younger crowd who only know anime this may not be for you. But for us older viewers who enjoyed stuff like the Hobbit etc this is a must.
